Radical Roots/Radical Routes of Worker Co-operation

Nous avons le pouvoir. Vivons l’évolution coopérative!

The movement for workplace democracy has always had a radical, transformative vision. These radical roots also call us to new radical routes, i.e., what is our way forward as a movement of solidarity economics based on ownership and control instead of capital? The world needs workplace democracy now more than ever; it needs people and planet before profits. Come to our Conference to help us map out these radical routes, to build this new and better world.
We are thrilled to welcome two Senators as co-keynote speakers, Senator Lucie Moncion, a committed life-long co-operator and Past President of Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada; and Senator Murray Sinclair, who chaired the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
